Gates scholar appears on leading current affairs programme

Michael Marin took part in a debate on Canada's The Agenda last night.

Gates scholar Michael Marin appeared on Canada’s leading current affairs programme this week to debate the link between the knowledge economy and rising inequality.

Marin [2011] appeared yesterday on The Agenda with Steve Paikin.

His research at Cambridge, where he is doing an LLM in Law, is looking at ways to explain why the corporate governance system broke down in the financial crisis, to find out where the gaps are in the system which led to the breakdown and to explain how these gaps existed in several different countries at the same time even though they had different governance systems. His aim is to find out how to prevent future instability.
